  • Thank you. I battle myself the same way every morning. Nice to know that I am not alone!! - 7/31/2015 8:53:05 AM
  • Of course, this is exactly what I go through to get off course. Get it....lol! You really hit the nail on the head and articulated it so well. I will think of this when I struggle to stay or go.

  • This was EXACTLY what I needed to hear! Thank you, sir, awesome post! - 6/12/2015 4:13:08 PM
  • I've always thought anything before 6am was a bit extreme, but have been managing to get up at 5.30am. Now anything before 5am sounds a bit extreme - and I'm not sure I could manage 4.30am! I have to balance up the need to get up in time to do stuff before work with the need to get enough sleep (especially if I finish work late the night before). But, I do what I can. And the lesson is good - preparation before bed is always helpful in the morning! - 4/3/2015 10:41:49 AM

    Sounds just like my mornings, but I don't even have to go outside, just to the basement to my fully equipped, yet rough around the edges home gym. I make sure I set the alarm where I at least have to get out of bed to turn it off. That get's me working out probably 9 out of 10 times, and it feels great all day long afterward. I just need to remember how good it feels afterward as I am waffling.

    Thanks for the article. - 11/18/2014 8:28:02 PM
  • Excellent article and it has landed home with me. Many thanks.

    Btw - I love 'Bon Courage'. Thanks for that, Lalizarde. Very, very apt. - 11/18/2014 2:23:01 AM
  • Great article--short and sweet and straight to the heart of the matter. - 7/21/2014 11:45:06 AM
  • Good luck is kind of a dumb wish. In France they say "Bon courage" - good courage, and in Japan, they say good effort. Maybe we should switch to one of those. - 4/8/2014 1:54:49 PM
  • Great article that nails it! - 1/19/2014 11:11:11 AM
  • It is nice to know that even a personal trainer struggles getting out of bed! I fight with myself everyday. Worst is when my husband is snoring right through the alarm! The best thing I do is make myself get out of bed at least for 5 min. I tell myself is I still don't want to go ok, but most of the time I figure I am already up might as well go! - 12/18/2013 10:18:52 AM

    Exercise is actually bad for you. See "Why You Should Never Exercise" at Amazon.com. - 11/9/2013 9:17:52 PM
  • I like this article! - 9/4/2013 3:58:18 AM
  • I would really like to get into the habit of exercising early in the morning. - 7/9/2013 6:09:20 PM
  • Thanks.. just what I needed. And I like the 90 year old plus category for the 5K. I hope I'm right in there too! - 6/11/2013 6:44:24 PM
  • Good article. Sometimes I will say I'm not going today. But I will sit about five minutes and I'll say no let me go to the gym. For me I feel guilty if I don't go. - 5/21/2013 7:37:39 AM
